Operators in the Texas city are forced to recycle. Could other cities soon follow?

On this episode of Working Lunch, Align Public Strategies discusses an Austin, Texas, ban on restaurants from disposing of food waste and trash — forcing them to recycle. Could other cities soon follow?

In other news, Amazon has disrupted the labor market again — this time setting a wage floor of $15 per hour for its workers. And the Fight for $15 lost a major legislative battle this week. The Align team goes over these topics and more. Plus, get the latest legislative scorecard.
